Compassionate Friends

"The peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."  Philippians 4:7 

 Compassionate Friends of Kaukauna Catholic Parishes

Bereavement Outreach Ministry
Compassionate Friends of Kaukauna Catholic Parishes send out our prayers, heartfelt greetings, ongoing sympathy and support to those who mourn the loss of a loved one.

Following a funeral, a team member “adopts” each family for the first year by:

  • Praying for the family
  • Sending inspirational cards to the family throughout the year
  • Assisting with the All Souls Day Prayer Service on November 2nd
  • Assisting with the annual widows/widowers gathering in spring

Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Them
After a parish member passes away, his or her life is commemorated with a cross that bears their name. The cross will be placed on a special remembrance wall at either Holy Cross or St. Katharine Drexel – St. Mary Church. We ask for your prayers for the repose of their souls and peace for their grieving family and friends.
